    Opinions On Outfit, URGENT. (Picture Provided)

    Hi guys,

    Just trying to sort out an outfit for a big night out tonight. Relatively dressy club so I thought I'd hit the vintage shops and get a couple of silk scarves. Struggling to feel completely confident with the look though. Thoughts?

    Outfit consists of:

    Grey tweed blazer
    Grey Paisley Pocket Square
    Pink Oxford Shirt
    Grey vintage silk scarf
    Slim indigo jeans
    Tan desert boots

    IMO the scarf, pocket square and shirt colour is a bit much.

    I'd switch the shirt for a plain white/grey v-neck or scoop tee, and neatly fold the pocket square so only a little bit of it is showing.

    Where are you going?

    I really don't understand where you people go to need to dress up that much for a club. Maybe I just go in the wrong sorts of places.

    I would go with pins, switch the shirt for a tee, keep the scarf. You could potentially lose the pocket square altogether (you don't always need one), you're wearing silk scarf, that should be your centre piece.

    How about this?

    - Swapping the pink shirt for a plain white vee neck t-shirt
    - losing the pocket square
    -swapping the jeans for burgundy chinos
    - keeping the scarf

    Actually, fuck the chinos. I'll keep the jeans.

    The scarf / tee combo is much better.

    You don't need burgundy chinos with that, the outfit has enough going on already - good call on the jeans.

    Still want to know where you're going! You're in Bristol right?

    I don't know where I'm going aha, all I was told was "dress up".


    It better not be Syndicate/Bunker/Lounge or something. I'd rather die.

    Less is definitely more Nath. The first pic was in danger of looking a bit try-hard. I like the second one, and it shows off the scarf a bit more.

    Are you now wearing a navy blazer with indigo jeans though? Does it look a bit much all together? Maybe break up with some grey cords or something, if you have any?

    And the shoes seem a bit casual too. Just some brown derbies would do the trick.
